About this album

There are hidden meanings to everything. From the cover art to the music itself, LAM’s new CD is laced with symbolism, double entendres and hidden meaning.

In the past Sean Brennan has presented us with thought provoking visions of beauty with his musical project London After Midnight. Wrapped in an appealing package were tales of love, abuse, betrayal and ecstasy that transcended genres and, it turns out, transcended time; the music Sean Brennan writes has earned a long lasting following.

Often Sean’s music manifested itself as poetic visions of larger social issues, like the songs “Revenge” or “Kiss” which touched on bigotry and politics (personal and societal), and abuse at the hands of religious leaders. As foreshadowed by these songs, we are now living in dark times and they call for revolutionary thought, actions and art. And Sean Brennan delivers with his most powerful, most disturbingly beautiful, and his darkest work to date.

Long an advocate for various progressive political and social issues, animal rights and environmental causes, Sean delivers his new CD “Violent Acts of Beauty” wrapped in controversial imagery of a world in turmoil, double meanings, visions of solitude, a population obsessed with ego and destruction, and a creator (or Creator?) frustrated with his creation - all set to a beautiful and unique sonic landscape that reaches from 1960s protest music to a modern and original sound that defies description.

    Fabulous album. Different from older LAM, so it might take some people time to appreciate it, but it truly is sensational in it's own way. It was even better performed live. One of the best shows I've ever been to.

    This sound nothing like Manson. seriously what Manson are you listening to? THis CD is the best LAM cd yet! Love it. The layers of meaning are never ending. I can listen to this cd and discover new things every day. And the music is just so damn pretty while being freaky and awesome
